who knows where we'll go?

The week turns from Holocaust week into Memorial week almost inperceptibly.  It's not only the programs on television, it's every conversation, every plan, every appointment.  Monday afternoon begin the services in memory of soldiers killed in the wars in Israel, but days before that grief is re-awakened for the lost future generation, just as the week before that grief was re-awakened for the lost past.  We are in the middle of the previous generation destroyed and tomorrow's generation in constant danger.  It is a terrible sandwich to be in.  And it is one frought with responsibility.
